Circular Verse

Okay, I'm feeling creative. And I find that so seldom is verse ever actually written to be visually recognizable, so here are the rules for this thread.

One line per post, to create seven line verses in the following pattern:

1st line short-------------
2nd line medium---------------
3rd line long--------------------------
4th line longest----------------------------
5th line long--------------------------
6th line medium----------------
7th line short-------------

Example:

Once outside
I realized that the air
Was particularly sweet today
Perhaps it was the honeysuckle vines
Or the red and yellow roses
I took a deep breath
Spring at last

I'll start the first one:

1. Sunday morning
